Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) could return Week 12

Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 4:15pm

Steve Reed on Twitter - [Full Article]

Ron Rivera said Greg Olsen is progressing very well and the plan is still for him to return for the team's game against the Jets in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact:

Reed added in his tweet that plan could change but Rivera likes where Olsen is at to this point and the team is excited to get him back. As we've seen from players returning from injury, they don't always jump right in with fantasy success but Olsen is looking to be ready to go for the fantasy playoffs.

Scouting Report

Week 2 vs. Buffalo Bills

Greg Olsen only caught 2 passes on 4 targets for 18 yards against the 49ers last week, as the Panthers ran the ball 38 times in a lopsided victory. Olsen should snap back to his consistent numbers moving forward, and it’s too early to panic with the elite veteran.

This week, Olsen will face a Bills defense that shut down the Jets offense last week, but did allow 5 catches and 59 yards to the tight end combination of Will Tye and Eric Tomlinson. Olsen is light years better than either of those players and should be active in all league formats.
